I bought this handset in the celebration of the Indian Independence Day. And here are the comments :
1. Colours : This Phone has only Basic Scheme of Colours & not advanced scheme like in MS Excel 2007.
2. Themes & Wallpapers : This Phone contains only 2 themes + 3 extra on the memory card. 1 gives it a black & white feel, while the other is Pinkish Purple. Black Theme does not give a clear view of the certain menu / options. Pinkish colour doesn't look good or it merges with the Progress Bar of the Music Player. The Wallpapers are also of Geometric figures like circles / stripes like the MS Outlook stationery & not real scenery / landscape images.
3. Keypad : This Phone contains a Plastic Keypad which makes it look more like a Toy Phone, although it is smooth / soft in typing.
4. No Hand-writing Recognition is available in India.
5. There are no Dual Speakers as mentioned. Although the Ring Quality is louder than Samsung Corby Phones. Loud Speaker Quality is Average, when you put the call on Loudspeaker.
6. Virtual Keypad for Text Input is missing. Alphabetic Touchpad is missing.
7. Basic options of Cut, Copy, Paste are missing. Suppose you have a draft message saved & later you decided to post on the Facebook Wall, you need to type the entire message again on Facebook as Cut, Copy, Paste Options are missing. Or if the Internet Page does not load / Mail cannot log you on, you need to re-type the mail address & password all over again.
8. Cell Info Display is missing like in Classic Phones.
9. Equaliser to adjust the music output & Music Player Options like Jazz Rock etc. are missing, that are contained in Classic Phones. Radio & Music Player themes are also missing.
10. Delivery Reports for Sent Messages that are available in Basic Nokia Models are also missing. However the entire chain of messages can be viewed like in Blackberry / IPhones.
11. Option of Saving files recd through bluetooth on Phone or Memory Card, Location of the Folder is not there.
12. Font Size is too Large even in Normal Size compared to Classic Phones. Small size is not available except for messaging.
13. Stand By Font Colours for display of date & time on the Home Screen as per the Wallpaper are missing.
14. Help Text Activation Menu is missing unlike the classic phones, in case you need to be prompted on a particular option of the menu.
15. Voice Clarity Feature for Noisy Outdoor Areas / Bad Coverage Areas like in Classic Phones is missing.
16. Nokia Internet Browser is pathetic. It does not load pages & shows message "404 error forbidden" or is very slow & connection gets lost halfway even on Vodafone GPRS. We need to reload pages 3-4 times involving that much data costs. Nokia browser does not have the “Forward” Button. It only goes “Back”
17. Pathetic Device Memory – Just 900KB Free Device Memory.. Cant Open Music Player or Load Maps. Playing Java based pre-loaded games on the Mobile shows "Out of Memory" Error even though nothing is stored on the Device Memory. It shows a message “Please delete items from Gallery” & I have to delete all contacts & messages.
18. Camera is of Average Quality. Although it has various options of adjusting the brightness / contrast of the images, fading / darkening colour & cropping images.
19. Graphic Symbols pertaining to various options / sub menu are of basic quality / black n white.
20. Battery Charging takes longer than other phones & life is lesser. Discharge is faster N you need to recharge everyday or more frequent if you listen to music / radio based on usage.
21. It is heavy.
22. Dual SIM is easy to switch. Especially loading the SIM2 from the side is easy.
23. 2GB Memory Card is Free which is not available with other New Models.
24. Home Screen & Swipe Gestures can be customised. But the Wallpapers get covered up with the Shortcut Icons on the Home screen.
25. Option of organising the Sequence of the Sub Menu in the Main Menu is missing.
26. 1 common volume switch is present for adjusting the Volume of Music / Radio & Ringer & In-Call Ear Piece / Zoom In-Out the pics.
27. You can set a specific section of song / music of your choice as your ringtone without the preceding music by cropping the song & adjusting the start or end points, without modifying the original file.
28. Sample Video provided on the Memory Card with the device shows a message “This Video may not play properly on this device”
If u r live in low network connectivity area then u dont buy this phone. Phone ntwrk strenght is low.
i thik c2-03 that have hanging problem & no battry backup upto 2 hour,and o/s is not used to easy but camra is good
Also, for those of you complaining, why don't you purchase a different dual sim phone and compare it to C2-03 for good measure.
i have a problem with this set.. my earphones is not working properly although i purchased this cell before 3 days and also some contacts were showing deleted from the list but when i do again switch on it shows.. battery is not charging in sufficient time.touch is a little hard. it also hangs. will Nokia center replace it?
heyy guys!! i bought it few days before i haven't inserted any sim card yet. but here are few problems i m facing
1. whenever playing a 3gp format video, it shows in the starting " this device may not play video" but eventually it plays the entire video. it becomes annoying
2. it hangs a lot and when i press any button it automatically gets switched off
3. while updating the library in music player it includes all ringtones provided in the memory card in the " EXTRA" folder.

rashpace40, 21 Aug 2011Hey,I used to use Skype in my Nokia X6 ...:-)Realy ! are you a software engineer or modified something like this from others ? You know that isn't easy to use or manage for general peoples . am I right ?
@ Prassad: How much did it cost you? Of course, you get what you pay for. You didn't think Nokia will put Carl Zeiss optics in this one and all the goods when you're paying for a low-end phone do you?
I request my dear friends. plz. dont purches this mobile phone bcoze waste of money. this phone not a better mp3 & 3gp videos.and its browser is not working properly.Its phone memory is very short.so additional apps are installed.
Wana share my experience with u guys,
Nokia C2-03 hmmm. what to say abt this gadget disappoinmnet...frm NOKIA... Dual Sim Easy swap a good feature bt still touch sensor is really bad as i vil say the worst one i have ever seen... Jst 10 MB internal memory, Camera Quality is really nt upto the mark...
Looks r ok slider cell bt keypad is nt at all comfortable, Touch screen is jst a big joke coz if it wud have been their it wud have been the better cell,
Overall i will say DISAPPOINTMENT FROM NOKIA....!!!!
